Certain facial features can add to the good looks of a person. A dimple on the face is considered a symbol of beauty in just about every culture worldwide. This slight depression on the cheek is considered cute and a source of good luck in some parts of the world. Famous actresses such as Cameron Diaz and Hillary Duff flaunt their dimples every time they smile for the cameras. Naturally occurring dimples are rare and caused by some facial muscles being shorter than others. However, now, doctors can create dimples with the help of a cosmetic procedure called Dimpleplasty. You can achieve cuteness like your favorite actresses with one simple procedure.
Let’s learn more about the dimple creation process and how you can benefit from it.
The Dimple Creation
Dimpleplasty is a minimally invasive procedure used for creating a dimple in about 20 minutes. The results can be seen within a few days. After the procedure, the patient can carry on with most routine activities without any trouble.
The procedure starts with the administration of local anesthesia in the area to be treated. The surgeon will then make a small incision in the area where the dimple needs to be. A stitch is run across the cheek under the skin’s surface and tied to achieve the desired outcome. You can resume your daily routine once the procedure is concluded. The results are permanent though they can be reversed if needed.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Anyone who desires to get a dimple added to their smile is a candidate. General good health is obviously required. The person getting the treatment should not be a smoker or a drinker. If they are, they need to abstain from these habits for a few weeks before the treatment.
Patients should also avoid blood-thinning medications for a few days before the dimpleplasty. They must discuss their medical history with the doctor to ensure that they are suitable candidates for the procedure.
Post Procedural Care
There is some mild discomfort after the procedure. The use of ice packs can help subside it quickly. Some temporary bleeding and swelling may also occur. Patients are prescribed a pain killer by the doctor to do away with post-op pain. The complete healing process takes about seven to ten days. Be sure to follow all the instructions from your doctor to achieve the optimal results.
The Bottom Line
Dimpleplasty is a fantastic option for people looking to rejuvenate their smile with the help of a dimple. It is a quick cosmetic surgery with little to no side effects and no downtime. The result is the creation of a dimple that will brighten up your smile in no time.
